With summer right around the corner, Captain Morgan has teamed up with YouTube personalities The Slow Mo Guys to remind everyone to break free from the same-old boring daiquiris and piña coladas this year!
The Slow Mo Guys use a high-speed camera to film content in slow motion, which provides viewers with an entertaining, and often hilarious perspective on physical contact. Their videos have helped them rack up nearly 4 million YouTube subscribers.
Through a series of explosive videos, the British duo have expanded on the popular theme integrated into the Captain Morgan White Rum ad spots released earlier this year. In each video, the Slow Mo Guys obliterate traditional summer cocktails in outrageous ways – such as firing off a Cannon. But that’s not all! They also used other bizarre props to cause destruction in the Liquid Nitrogen and Anchor segments.
In celebration of this video series premiere, Captain Morgan is hosting a two-week contest that challenges fans 21+ to guess the number of cocktails that were demolished during the making of Cannon. The 100 fans who come closest to the correct amount of cocktail causalities will win a Captain Morgan branded cannonball. The contest will be hosted on Facebook, where fans can submit their entries in the comment section.
After you’ve submitted your entry, kick back with one of these delicious Captain Morgan White Rum cocktails:
- 1.5 oz. Captain Morgan White Rum
- 2 oz. cranberry juice
- 2 oz. orange juice
In a shaker half filled with ice, add Captain Morgan White Rum, cranberry juice and orange juice. Shake well and strain into highball glass filled with ice. Garnish with lime.

- 0.5 oz. fresh lime juice
- 0.5 oz. simple syrup

- 1 oz. club soda

Put all ingredients except club soda and mint sprig into a mixing glass. Add ice and shake vigorously. Add club soda, shake once, and pour into a tall glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.
Bud Light Kicks Off The Football Season With Two New ‘Dilly Dilly’ Spots
I don’t know about you, but I just cannot get enough of those hilarious Bud Light Dilly Dilly commercials. And lucky for us, Bud Light is back with two new “Dilly Dilly” ads to celebrate the long-awaited return of the NFL football season.
Bud Lights For Everyone:
During the college football kickoff weekend, Bud Light previewed this spot, which depicts our regal King gifting his kingdom’s loyal habitants with his favorite light lager, Bud Light, when one of the pub patrons asks for a mead. The ad highlights the one friend in every group who tries to show off their sophisticated palette, even when it contradicts the group’s preference.
This commercial introduces two new characters from the neighboring kingdom, Count and Countess Pamplemousse. The Pamplemousse’s represent the snobby friends you always seem to invite to a party. Royal Affair celebrates Bud Light as the light lager of choice for a large group of friends (and foes).
Here’s hoping that these two are just the first in a long line of Dilly Dilly commercials that run throughout the season!
Busch Light Gets In On The Pumpkin Spice Latte Craze With ‘Busch Latte’
Last week, Starbucks announced that they were bringing back their Pumpkin Spice Latte, and Busch Light wasted no time in getting in on the action by temporarily rebranding Busch Light as Busch Latte, and sharing a photo of the new can on Twitter.
As expected, Twitter lost their collective minds, with people rushing out to score some Busch Latte of their very own. The only problem? It’s not real. No, it’s just a clever marketing stunt that pokes fun at the PSL craze. Well played Busch Light!
But they didn’t stop there. In addition to the photoshopped Busch Latte cans on Twitter, they also rolled out a series of mobile #BuschLatte billboards in St Louis, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, parking outside of various Starbucks for the ultimate in trolling.
While you can’t get your hands on any physical Busch Latte cans, you can snag some sweet Busch Latte merch here, with a selection of shirts and coozies to choose from.
Here’s hoping that AB actually released some Busch Latte cans, as I’d definitely buy them! 🙂
Bud Light Victory Fridges To Reward Fans Upon Cleveland Browns’ First Win
To say that the Cleveland Browns have been on a losing streak would be putting it mildly. The team has only won a single game in the past two seasons. In fact, Johnny Manziel was the last quarterback to win a game for the Browns. Pretty crazy, right?
Bud Light believes in the Browns though, and to show their support they’ve rolled out a bunch of Victory Fridges across various Cleveland watering holes, filled with ice-cold Bud Light. The only catch? These fridges are currently locked.
Featuring a smart-technology, all of the Victory Fridges will simultaneously unlock after the Browns capture their first regular-season victory and snap their winless streak, giving fans 21 and over the chance to enjoy the sweet taste of victory together. Dilly Dilly!
“The Bud Light Browns ‘Victory Fridge’ is a fun way to celebrate and reward a fanbase that has never wavered in enthusiasm or dedication for their team no matter what happens. We’re proud to show our support for Cleveland, and we’re always looking to bring NFL fans and friends together for memorable experiences. It’s going to be fun to be part of the celebration when the team earns their first victory of the season,” said Andy Goeler, Vice-President of Marketing, Bud Light.
Here’s hoping that Bud Light has a good shelf life, because I just don’t see the Browns’ losing streak ending anytime soon. 🙂
